Short summary of the Project description (HEI number): Mains d’Œuvres is situated in Saint-Ouen, a suburban city very close to the north of Paris, in the Seine-Saint-Denis area. A town of 40,000 inhabitants, Saint-Ouen is famous for its flea market “Puces de Saint-Ouen”, an antique dealers’ market open every week-end. The non profit organization « Mains d’Œuvres » is situated in an old Leisure centre that previously belonged to Valeo (the ancient building of the Valeo factory’s social and sportive centre). This 4,000 square metre space has been turned into a place for creation, diffusion, research and experiences dedicated to host artists from several disciplines (Music, Visual and Digital Arts, Dance, Theatre, Education, International Cooperation) and citizen initiatives. We give technical, logistic and human support to the artists in residency for their artistic creations. Mains d’Œuvres would like to help them in realizing projects that link Art, Culture and Society. During his stay, the EVS volunteer will participate in different kinds of activities of the art centre. He will help to collect information about National, European and International financing, participate in the promotion of the art centre in the local territory, help the organization Artfactories to increase its database of art centres in Europe by getting in contact with the cultural organizations of his country (optional).

For the deadline coming up the 1st of September Pekarna has submitted an application to renew their “Host Expression of Interest” (that you need to write to your National Agency to become accredited to host volunteers). This application should be approved shortly. A good volunteer profile would be someone interested in and with basic knowledge of various types of multimedia (a lot of equipment available at Pekarna to develop own projects to make short movies/photo exhibitions). Pekarna also wants to start to work with the local community a lot more, and start to arrange workshops for children. Good qualities of a volunteer would be someone who is a team-worker and used to take own initiatives and be creative. Pekarna is a very open cultural centre where it’s possible to realize your own projects as long as you’ve got your own ideas and are willing to work for them. Another project under development at Pekarna this Autumn is to set up a puppet theatre.

Short summary of Project description (HEI number 1-SK-25):

In October 2003, the association Truc spherique moved to Zilina-Zariecie Railway Station in Zilina. Zilina has about 100 000 inhabitants and is one of the biggest towns in Slovakia, about 200 km from the capital city Bratislava (with good connections to all European destinations). By moving to the railway station, Truc spherique realized its dream of having its own place. Truc spherique connects young people, professionals and students active in the field of art and culture as well as social development and art therapy. The team consists of 7 members/employees, but also of external co-operators, as well as (Slovak and foreign) artists, curators, dramaturges, experts and also volunteers from the local community. The railway station links elements of a public space (operating railway station) and elements of a multimedia cultural centre (gallery – exhibition and debate program, performance room – music, theatre, dance and projections, workshops and studios - creative artistic workshops for children and adults, art therapy activities, youth and social activities, artist-in-residence programme, art education for schools, cafe - with reading room, information point, internet and multimedia devices). The main aim is to offer an opportunity to each EVS volunteer to discover the different activities of the socio-cultural centre Stanica and to develop her/his creativity, her/his knowledge about contemporary arts and to learn how to organize such activities. We also hope to learn from the previous experiences of the EVS volunteer in her/his country. We would like for the volunteer to be involved in the daily work of the organisation, and later to be able to realize her/his own projects. The volunteer will work with the preparation and organization of professional art performances and presentations, participate in the socio-artistic activities of our creative centre Atelier and the program Art for social change. This practical work is common for every EVS volunteer that comes to Truc spherique, but we have also identified 3 different profiles of volunteers’ tasks in our organization: 1.Art for social change (participative youth art activities), 2. Atelier (artistic and art therapy workshops for children), 3. Technical assistance.

As every small NGO, but especially during the phase of establishment in our new centre (2004-2005), we are usually asking relative autonomy and flexibility of the volunteers. In our project there are many opportunities for the volunteer to build her/his project and to give her/his opinion or to be involved in the decision process so we are looking for creative persons with active attitude and strong ideas. The motivation and adapted expectations of the volunteer to the task is our principal criteria, but a minimum of artistic or creative background and work experience with the target group would facilitate the realisation of the volunteers’ tasks. We expect the volunteer to have a basic knowledge of English. The duration of the EVS project Art for social change and Atelier profile should be about 10-12 months, but could be shorter for the 3rd profile. We always try to have a balance between gender and diversity between countries where volunteers are coming from.
